Vanessa Lachey stars in Lifetime's A Twist of Christmas, and her real-life love, husband Nick Lachey, is a holiday hunk!

On Saturday, December 1, Vanessa Lachey stars in her first (but hopefully not last!) Christmas movie in Lifetime’s A Twist of Christmas.

In the festive flick, two single parents — busy working mom Abby (Lachey) and overwhelmed lawyer Ryan (Charmed cutie Brendon Zub) — accidentally mix up their toys at a crowded department store.

Although the two parents can’t stand each other, they are forced to work together to salvage the holidays for their children. Our guess is that the film ends with some kissing under the mistletoe.

When TV Insider asked Vanessa about her favorite holiday film, the actress revealed, “A holiday movie [husband Nick Lachey] and I watch every year since we started dating is Love Actually.

She continued, “When we got married we had the song — just like in the movie — “All You Need Is Love” play as we walked out as husband and wife. It’s a special movie to us, and Nick cries every time the little boy runs through the airport at the end to get the girl.”

Aww, Nick! We totally get it. Love Actually makes us cry, too.
